Designed and built for racing on the east coast of the US, Neptune's Car was created with speed in mind. Constructed entirely of carbon fiber, she held the record for the Marble Head to Halfax race for 20 years. Her history inspired the current owner to name her after the historic record breaking tall ship of 1853. Though she sails from Seattle's Waterfront in the summer, she is still active in the west coast racing scene from October until May.
